In this paper, Moroccan female migration to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is
explored within the overall framework of Moroccan counter-terrorism policy. According to
available data, Moroccans are considered as one of the main suppliers of fighters to ISIS.
However, as it will be highlighted in this research, there is a scarcity of data related to
Moroccan female migration to ISIS, to their sociodemographic profile, methods of their
recruitment and programs of their reintegration once they come back home. This article
focuses on Moroccan counter-terrorism policy and analyzes the extent to which it provides an
exemplary precedent in effectively fighting terrorism. This policy includes, as will be
examined, repressive and “soft” counter-radicalization and de-mobilization measures.
